A script to guess licenses based on text

Project description


Heavily inspired by this will provide an API to guess what license a given file represents.

>>> from infer_license import guess_file
>>> print(guess_file("LICENSE"))
License(name='MIT License', shortname='MIT', trove_classifier='License :: OSI Approved :: MIT License')
>>> guess_file("")

There's also a handy infer_license script that takes a filename.

$ infer_license LICENSE
